This is Us!

Prom season is finally here. The annual event is quickly taking its toll on the students. From a simple task like buying a prom ticket to a daring task like promposing to a crush, students have entered pre-prom week.

The prom’s theme this year is: “This is us! The Greatest Show on Earth!” The theme is based off of the movie, “The Greatest Showman.” When asked, Mr. Yohe commented that the theme was a suggestion from Mr. Woods. He advised students to wear bright colored clothing and accessories, especially red, to match the prom’s theme.

“Although I’m not a senior, I’m super excited for prom. At first I was debating whether or not I should go, since I’m a junior, but then I heard the theme and fell in love,” said junior, Liz Hernandez. “I absolutely loved the Greatest Showman movie, so I’m really excited to see how the prom committee sets the dance out.”

Prom day is April 27. It will take place at the City Place Marriott in West Palm Beach. Doors will open at 8 pm, and students have up until 10 pm to arrive. The dance itself, however, will end at 11:30 pm.

The dance is meant to be a magical night for everybody, but mostly for the seniors. After 12 years of education, this generation of people have made it to their graduation. This night is for them.
